Suntan fixation and a duration of its effect depends on various factors. Skin preparation for taking sun bath, its time and location, usage of cosmetic products and even food are of big importance in this question.
How to get a good suntan: the main tips
- To get a smooth suntan and get it fixed, first you should prepare your skin. The best and comfortable way to do it is to take warm bath with sea salt or essential oils. During this procedure peel you skin gently with scrub to remove dead cells. Smooth and clean skin will allow your suntan be even;
- After cleansing the skin, it is necessary to apply a sunscreener (SPF not less than 30). An effective sunscreener will neutralize the negative influence of ultraviolet, as a result of it our organism doesn’t sense any danger and doesn’t take protecting action against harmful ultraviolet rays. This eliminates the risk of sunburns and skin redness;
- The time of tanning also affects it fixation and lifetime. It is dangerous to believe that the hotter the sun is, the better suntan you get. It is very easy to get a sunburn. When you sunbathe at the highest point of temperature, the suntan may not only get you skin burnt, but also peel off very fast and make your skin look unattractive. You can get the most long-staying suntan in the morning or late in the afternoon. If you don’t have time to sunbathe at these parts of the day, you can do it in the afternoon but in the shadow;
- After sunbathing it is necessary to take shower and afterwards – to apply a good after-suntan cosmetic product. Creams, lotions and oils of this category can effectively fix a beautiful suntan, prevent it from peeling off, moisturize and fight skin aging.
